Hotel Jaguar is an immersive installation by Amanda Newall that will take her audience to the setting of a family-run hotel, in which they can take part and perform: by taking a position of a hotel visitor, a resident, or a member of staff. The story will expand around them accordingly.
The hotel itself will appear as a semi-fictional historical-futuristic situation, where the time scales, visual references in design and style, as well as the overall "atmosphere" is not pointing to one period of time, but merges the experience of deja-vu with a dream setting of a place that has never existed (yet nevertheless seems eerily familiar). The activities in the hotel will be inspired by the stories and objects Newall found at Exposed and with which she emotionally resonated herself: personal belongings, workwear, postcards and engineering tools left behind by the staff of the old Jaguar dealership (that resided in these premises for the last 90 years). Resurrected, appropriated, and functional once again, these things will be now enacted by the staff of Hotel Jaguar.
